September is the month of the grape harvest & what is better than heading to Italy to discover its famous excellent Tuscan wines in one of the best known valleys & wine producing areas in Chianti, South of Florence.
Chianti lies between the provinces of Florence, Arezzo & Siena. It offers the opportunity to taste prestigious labels & great vintages.
An adventurous trip would be to visit the three beautiful regions of Chianti, Montalcino & Montepulciano all in one day!
It will be a long journey so it is better to go on an organized guided tour. You’ll spend an extraordinary time wine tasting in Greve, Castellina & then Monteriggioni, Montalcino & Montepulciano…
Another suggestion would be to visit the impressive Castello di Brolio’s wineries, its cellars & the vineyards of the estate & enjoy a tasting of its exceptional wine.
The Casa del Chianti Classico is a discovery in itself. It is located in the heart of Tuscany in the 18th century convent of Santa Maria al Prato & is the first “house of wine” for the Chianti Classico Wine Consortium. It offers plenty of activities related to the wine & culture of the territory: courses on wine, informative pathway devoted to wine & the history of Chianti Classico, cooking classes, Al Convento bistro, Gallo Nero exclusive wine shop,…
The famous Tuscan winery Fattoria il Lago located in Mugello, only a few kilometers from Florence along the Chianti Rufina wine road, offers the opportunity to stay in its Tuscan farmhouse apartments & enjoy wine tasting activities as well as visits to the wine production cellars, visits to the nearby dairy farm locally famous for its production of various types of cheese, cooking classes,…
I hope my post took you far away to beautiful Tuscany!
Brindiamo alla vita, all’amore, alla felicità. Salute! 🍷
